Hosta ‘Wheaton Blue’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.700.330

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This larger selection has rounded blue leaves with attractive corrugation and quilting. Pale lavender flowers appear in July. A highly regarded selection for borders or massing. Suitable also for planting in mixed containers and tubs. Unlike many other blues, it has a fast growth rate. Hosta go completely dormant in fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid-spring. A H. ‘Paul’s Glory’ sport selected by Mark Zilis.
